Installing web app on AD domain controller but no aspnet account?

Hi,

I am trying to install a web application on an AD domain controller (security risk I know but it is our client's requirement) and i need to give the aspnet account certain permissions. However, the account is not listed in AD users and computers snap-in, though I can see IWAM and IUSR. Where is this account? I have installed the .net framework and re-registered it, but it still ain't there.

Any ideas???

Thanks
Jano

Hi - thanks for the quick reply.

I have read the document you mention. However, it does not mention that the
aspnet account has disappeared, and that is the main thing I am worried
about. It does say I can create an account with the same permissions as
aspnet and just change the machine.config file, but that would affect all
..net apps running on the server, and some of these apps might have the aspnet
account hard-coded - bad design I know, but we deal with all types of clients
and applications.

It seems like the disappearance of the .net account is unusual as i've come
across other postings mentioning various issues with having .net apps on a DC
but NONE say the aspnet account is not there...

Any more help greatly appreciated!
